Water Conservation

The average family uses
about 1,020 litres
of water around the home
every day
- thats 118 full buckets!

We live on one of the world's driest continents.
By using water sensibly at home and at work,
we can help reduce demand for this finite resource.

I found this on one of our local sites from this area. There is other information about the flora and fauna of this district, if anyone is interested in having a look here http://www.australian-aridlands-botanic-garden.org/index.htm

I was amazed at the amount of water that is used in households, no wonder our River Murray is running dry.

  1. One of our houses had water restrictions until very late to help build up the water in the dams I thought. I saw Lake Hume recently and it looked empty. It is very confusing.
